#109 | Physical Intelligence for Heathy Aging | Dr. Scott Grafton

Physical intelligence is the brain’s ability to figure out how to perform physical skills better and better. It learns by doing. 

But we forget. We lose skills we don’t use. That results in losing basic life skills if we withdraw from life. The more we pull back from activities that might result in injury the less capable we become over time. We have to find a way to stretch ourselves in what we already know or in learning new activities. 

Exercise is not enough. We need unpredictable environments. An opponent across the net. An unstable trail. Something that engages the brain in adapting skills to accommodate new information. We retain physical skills and we exercise the brain.

# 108 | Red & NIR Light Therapy Really Works, But How? | Dr Zulia Frost

The reason we can feel infrared light is the infrared wavelengths can penetrate through clothing and through our skin and even through bone, down into our muscles and organs.  It turns out that our bodies react to this light, as well as to other wavelengths including red light to up-regulate normal bodily functions that lead to healing and performance.

#106 — Pain-free Cycling w/Kevin Schmidt PT, MSPT, PedalPT

A bike is a marvelous extension of the human body. Riding a bike is a like full-body meditation. When you do it right you are immersed in the present….lost in the pleasure of your body working well. That is, as long as your bike doesn’t cause pain.   Some people never have problems but others have to struggle to get the right combination of gear, body function, and set up. For those of us in that last category, a good bike fitter is priceless. 

So why is good bike fitting so hard to come by?  It turns out that it isn’t hard if you know what to look for. 

Kevin Schmidt knows bikes, and he knows bodies. He’s a good friend to the cyclist.

Efficiency in training, in health, and in life comes of finding solutions that solve multiple problems at once. If only there was one thing that improved: athletic performance, recovery from exercise, lower blood pressure, less plaque buildup in arteries, and improved immune function? It is called Nitric Oxide, and you have much less of it now than you did when you were young. The good news is you can get more, and the answer is simple. It isn’t easy, but it is simple.
